Early action projects for the Cabo Rojo Priority Management Area
The Nature Conservancy
"This project will focus on initial project development in the Cabo Rojo watershed to begin to identify key early action projects and potential local or federal sponsors in order to begin to move implementation efforts forward. Ideally early action projects will represent the efforts needed to reduce key stressors in these watersheds. In this case we have chosen a green infrastructure bioretention project for early implementation (Appendix I) due to it representing an early action project that its effectiveness at reducing stormwater pollution and the need for many such projects in the developed areas of the Cabo Rojo watershed. Due to budget limitations - this initial project is a summary of fieldwork for a relatively small portion of the overall watershed specifically parts of two subwatersheds: the Combate subwatershed and the Joyuda lagoon watershed. This should not be considered a more extensive and thorough investigation that would occur as part of a full watershed plan."
